St. Basil's Committee would like to thank everyone who participated in the High Tea event during coffee hour on January 15th.  Thank you for your generous donations.  All were used for the purchase and installation of a new dishwashing sprayer unit for the sink.  See pictures from the day by clicking on the photo above!
